This years pumpkin carving inspiration came from the painting "Scream" by Edvard Munch (speaking of Halloween, what gets more Halloween than the name Edvard? Seriously, say it out loud right now, you sound exactly like a vampire.... not Edward the vampire, Edvard. Anyway, you get it...) We have a motto around here, when in doubt copy something REALLY good. Like something they talk about in Art History classes. This wouldn't be my first classic art copy cat... remember my starry night Easter egg anyone?
Here is our rendition of "Scream"... I traced it and Alden carved it... while I did dishes. A true team indeed.
This is our pumpkin next to our little Rose. She is/was a mini rose bush. We neglected her. She died. The end. Happy Halloween.
